The 27th District needs to elect the candidate with the ability to hit the ground running in the state Senate. Rep. Jeannie Darneille is that candidate.

Darneille has served as vice-chair of the House Ways and Means Committee for the past two years. This role is essential to our state’s budgeting process, and she has commanded that post extremely well – standing up for the social safety net, education and the City of Tacoma.

Darneille will transition to the state Senate with no learning curve whatsoever, and her reputation and authority will make the transition with her. She has accomplished great things as our representative for the past 12 years, and her outstanding leadership will continue in the Senate.
